When bounty hunter Gar Stitt is given a simple locate-and-retrieve mission, he's convinced it's a waste of his skills. His success rate is legendary, after all, and Captain Faolan Wolf isn't hard to find. He's the most notorious pirate in the galaxy, and when he shows up planetside to take his pleasures, he's far from subtle. Faolan never expected a hot but tightly wound hunter to walk into his private party and try to apprehend him single-handedly. And when an unexpected betrayal forces them to work together, Faolan's even more surprised to find himself drawn to Gar personally-especially since neither of them do personal. Gar had intended to put Faolan in prison. Instead he finds his solitary existence shaken by his desire for the pirate. And when the bounty hunter becomes the hunted, he must put his faith in Faolan and his pirate crew, or run the risk of ending up dead.

While many Civil War reference books exist, there is no single compendium that contains important details about the combatant states (and territories) that Civil War researchers can readily access for their work. People looking for information about the organization, activities, economies, demographics, and prominent personalities of Civil War states and state governments must assemble data from a variety of sources, and many key sources remain unavailable online. This volume, the first of six, provides a crucial reference book for Civil War scholars and historians, professional or amateur, seeking information about individual states or groups of states. Its principal sources include the Official Records, state adjutant-general reports, legislative journals, state and federal legislation, federal and state executive speeches and proclamations, and the general and special orders issued by the military authorities of both governments. Designed and organized for easy use, this book can be read in two ways: by individual state, with each chapter offering a stand-alone skeletal history of an individual stateÕs war years, or across states, comparing reactions to the same event or solutions to the same problems.

More than two centuries after Master’s Mate Fletcher Christian led a mutiny against Lieutenant William Bligh on a small, armed transport vessel called Bounty, the true story of this enthralling adventure has become obscured by the legend. Combining vivid characterization and deft storytelling, Caroline Alexander shatters the centuries-old myths surrounding this story. She brilliantly shows how, in a desperate attempt to save one man from the gallows and another from ignominy, two powerful families came together and began to create the version of history we know today. The true story of the mutiny on the Bounty is an epic of duty and heroism, pride and power, and the assassination of a brave man’s honor at the dawn of the Romantic age.

In Stephen Davis Band-Biografie, die das Genre begründete, bleibt kein Aspekt der unglaublichen Karriere von Led Zeppelin unberücksichtigt: Von den berühmt-berüchtigten Begegnungen mit allzeit bereiten Groupies und den narkotischen, alkoholischen und psychischen Exzessen über den verstörenden Einfluss des Magiers Aleister Crowley auf Lead-Gitarristen Jimmy Page bis hin zum Tod von John Bonham. Über allem steht dabei der umwerfende, alles und jeden umblasende Effekt der Musik von Led Zeppelin. Auch nach fast 30 Jahren Bandpause haben Robert Plant, Jimmy Page und John Paul Jones - an den Drums unterstützt durch John Bonhams Sohn Jason - nichts von ihrer Anziehungskraft verloren. Anlässlich ihres Live-Comebacks am 10. Dezember 2007 sind über 20 Millionen Kartenanfragen beim Konzertveranstalter eingegangen. Nicht auszudenken, was passiert, wenn Led Zeppelin 2008 zu einer Tour aufbricht...

Dan Colt was a big man. Standing six foot, four inches and weighing nearly three hundred pounds. Dan has a full black beard with traces of gray .He is a handsome man in his mid fortys. He is a bounty hunter and one of the best. This man has no fear of anyone, anytime, anything, anywhere, and he is the nicest person you have ever met, but some people make the mistake of riling him. Dan has the temper of a grizzly bear, but he has a soft spot for women and children. His horse Buck is fourteen hundred pound buckskin and has no problem packing Dan around. His dog Sammi, a female German Sheppard, now five years old and weighing well over one hundred pounds. He bought Sammi when she was four weeks old, and Dan spent many, many hours training her to his commands. If anyone did harm to Sammi, Dan would cut their throat, in one second. If anyone would does harm to Dan, Sammi would go for their throat in a second. She travels with Dan everywhere he goes. Dan carries a.45 Colt on one hip and a 14 inch Bowie knife big and sharp, on the other hip. An old timer that knows Dan said that Dan was chasing an outlaw and when he caught him the outlaw fought back. Dan cut his head off with one swipe of his knife. He reached down and unbuckled the outlaws gun and holster and hung it over the saddle home of the outlaws horse. He didnt take the rest of his body. He left that for the coyotes. Dan said the outlaws guns saddle and his horse was his bonus. Then he put the outlaws head in a sack and turned it in for the bounty. When Dan came across a beautiful woman named Maggie. She was wearing a beautiful long green gown. She took Dans breathe away. Dan also came across a 12 year old orphan boy named Billy. He was pretty much like most boys that age. Kinda skinny. He had blonde hair with a cow lick on the back of his head. He always had a half dozen blonde hairs sticking straight up. He was growing faster than his pants. They were usually two inches too short. Billy was a pretty tough kid and he will prove it. Dan teamed up with a bounty hunter named Joe Cobb. Joe proved too many rowdy cowboys and outlaws that it was a bad idea to try their luck at challenging Joe to a fight. Joe was a big man about the same size as Dan. They also came across a very beautiful tall slender young lady that can damn well take care of herself. Her name is Abby. A little girl named Little Milly was rescued after a wagon train got lost.
